Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors—introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.
We decided to celebrate our home grown entrepreneurs by running ‘A day in the life of a Jersey entrepreneur’ campaign on social media where innovative individuals living in Jersey had an opportunity to share their personal insights on what drives them to success.
